Using a number of resources at Discover France’s disposal, adventurers looking for the next-best thing to actually racing can style their experience to their own preference. The available opportunities let travelers meet backstage with the pros and experience the race from above via helicopter, behind from a follow-on car and even from the perspective of the race teams and riders, cycling through some of the race’s important milestones mere moments before the racers do.
Discover France’s Classic Tours take cyclists through different sections of the Tour de France course – Provence, the Alps and Mount Ventoux, or the Pyrenees. Each tour allows travelers to join the magic of the cycling event and explore the surrounding sites.
The VIP Tours take the Tour de France experience to the next level. Along with similar experiences to Discover France’s Classic Tours, the VIP Tours add on exclusive experiences like riding across the finish line just before the athletes. On VIP Tours, Discover France also arranges special experiences like being greeted by an official Tour de France hostess, and special access to the departure village and finish line. Travelers who want the cycling even experience, but do not want to ride can enjoy all of the same VIP access on a spectator tour.
Between the excitement of following the race as closely as possible, trip participants spend the evenings and nights in luxury hotels, from the Departure Village to the celebratory bottle of Champagne at the finish line on the Champs-Élysées.
